Software update 1.110 - Better walking directions and more popular places

Better walking directions

When you start a trip from Focals, you’ll notice some major improvements to walking directions that will help you navigate with confidence. Here’s what we worked on to get you where you need to go faster:

  • One-way streets were challenging and sometimes made it feel like Focals were directing you the wrong way or making trips longer than they needed to be. This is fixed so you can have peace of mind that you’re on the right and most efficient path.
  • We reduced the number of re-routing instances with some overall re-routing improvements.
  • Missing street names for some maneuvers are a thing of the past.
  • There's less turns through alleys or stairs, so expect easier routes for expert navigation.
